LOS ANGELES, Jul. 18, 2023 –  JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $52 million in construction financing for Lotus Point, a 245-unit multi-housing development set to deliver in late 2024 / early 2025 in Mesa, Arizona

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, StarPoint Properties, to secure the construction financing for the project through a debt fund.

Upon completion, Lotus Point will be a four-story, Class A multi-housing asset comprised of studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Planned amenities include a fitness center, clubhouse, coworking facility and group kitchen. On-site parking will consist of a mix of tuck-under and grade-level parking.

Lotus Point is located at 139 North Dobson Rd., directly adjacent to a Safeway grocery store and within immediate proximity to Tempe Marketplace. The transit-oriented property is walkable to the Metro Phoenix light rail stop with access to Downtown Mesa, Arizona State University, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and Downtown Phoenix. Additionally, Dobson Station is close to State Route 101 and 202 providing vehicular access to the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Jeff Sause, Director Wyatt Strahan and Associate Elle Miraglia.

“StarPoint is pleased to commence construction on this transformative, transit-oriented project. The City of Mesa has been great to work with and supports an ideal mix of new jobs and housing. We are further blessed to have the support of our lender, and a strong JLL team who helped drive this home,” said Sandy Schmid, Director of Acquisitions and Development at StarPoint Properties.
